Founded in 2016, the start-up RebelRides is a Luxury Motorcycle-Bike Rental Company which has begun its journey from Mumbai with the mission to improve and expand the industry of Motorcycle Tourism. Founders Akashdeep Singh Sachdev and Harsh Asher apart from having common passion for entrepreneurship, also share immense enthusiasm for high-end bikes and long rides. The idea of RebelRides was born from the need that was identified during their personal challenge to ride premium motorcycles without having the need to buy the expensive motorcycles. After significant research and exploring the fantasy of Bike Riders, the concept of Luxury and Premium Bikes on Rent came into existence. Although the concept is not a new to India for even Rebel Rides, but success of every business depends on the extra mile, innovation and extra effort it takes ahead of its competitors.
Vintage Bikes and Car Enthusiast ‘Gurinder Singh Rance‘ says, “Bikes are the Best way to Disconnect from the High-Tech Gizmos we all live with and Enjoy the wind on your face and be in touch with the elements. To Combine that with travel to Heritage, Historical and Nature Locations makes it a Superb Activity Related Passion”

RebelRides – Premium & Luxury Bike Rental in Mumbai – India
Talking about Motorcycle Tourism, Sachdev says, “Motorcycle Tourism is an established concept in western countries wherein companies such as “EagleRiders” have already established themselves as pioneers in the field. Motorcycle Tourism in India is also not new concept and has long been an activity undertaken by motorcycle enthusiasts. However the segment is highly un-fragmented and unstructured and because of the unstructured nature of this industry, customers are often left with a bad taste and less than a “wow” experience.”
Mumbai-based startup, Rebel Rides, is a platform where anyone who wants to explore the Indian terrain on two-wheels can rent high-end bikes. Their current inventory consists of two-wheeled premium and superbikes like the Royal Enfield Himalayan, Ducati and Harley Davidson.
